Cooperation - Republic of Indonesia and Federal Republic of Germany

From 08 to 10 November, the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry hosted the 2nd National Forest Management Unit (FMU) expert pool meeting with support from the GIZ Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME) in Yogyakarta.  
The purpose of the event which was attended by over 35 forestry academics and professionals across Indonesia was to develop a core group of university based FMU experts to provide advice in FMU development and operation and prepare the setup of training of trainers (ToT) services. This core group will be an important resource hub for knowledge and skill transformation and the basis for setting up regional expert pools as trainers for specific FMUs.

A common understanding on FMU concept, development and operationalization conceptually was developed among lecturers and participants. Additional side events were dedicated to the Higher Education Leadership Forum of Indonesian Forestry (FORETIKA) and academics of the National Forestry  Council (DKN) chamber. A major result was the consolidation of both forae into a new and integrated  organisation of academics, the ” Rumah Akademisi Kehutanan Indonesia (RAKI) / Indonesian House of Forestry Academics”. In addition participants conducted a one day visit to the FMU Yogyakarta to explore potential management and business model concepts and multistakeholder approaches within forest management.
